by Barbara Croll Fought (SYRACUSE) — The city had a lower number of homicides in 2011 than usual. An NCC News compilation of homicides in 2011 shows 14 deaths were classified as homicides. That’s compared to typically between 18 to 20 per year.
Syracuse Police only report 13 criminal homicides, as the fourteenth one occurred when police shot and killed a man who aimed a gun at them, an act police call a justified homicide.
